Thursday Thoughts: The Creativity Post

Thursday Thoughts: The Creativity Post

Thursday is here, and it’s time again for my weekly salute to all things creative. This week’s Thursday Thoughts blog is an introduction to a website you may not have heard of before. Its primary goals are to deliver content focused on creativity and innovation and to celebrate the imagination. Those are worthy missions if you ask me. What I especially appreciate about this site is that it is conceptual in its presentation — that is, the articles featured on the site plant seeds and then it is up to me as the reader to decide whether or not I choose to water those and help them flourish into some form of application of the ideas.

 

Welcome to www.creativitypost.com.

 

THE CREATIVITY POST

 

TheCreativityPost

 

When you stop by The Creativity Post website, one of the first things you can’t help noticing is its clean, uncluttered and user-friendly layout. Whatever your interests, it is easy to find the content you’re seeking at this site. (I wish they could give workshops to plenty of much more popular websites with far greater traffic…they could teach them a few things!)

 

For example, I spend a lot of time in the pop culture and arts tabs (big surprise there, huh?) but I do enjoy checking out articles on business, tech and science. There are plenty of topics covered across categories that can fire up your passion to create, make you stop and re-think what you’ve been doing and even compel you to go in an entirely different direction altogether.  Best of all, the information is easy to find and well-written overall. This site isn’t about hands-on creative exercises or wordplay as some past websites I’ve shared but more about concepts related to using our imaginations — whether it’s for our work, our creative expression or simply in our outlook on life and all of the elements we face in our world.

 

You may find some of the most intriguing content in the Create! section, where writers offer thoughtful words on leading with creativity, mentoring or being willing to be mentored and igniting that innovative spark. (This is one of my particular favorite articles from that section about the powerful and often overlooked tool we have in life and in entrepreneurship — the deliberate pause.) I hope you’ll check out this website and open your mind to all of the possibilities the insightful content there introduces to you.

 

The Creativity Post is like a virtual watercooler to listen in on contemporary perspectives about everything from politics and education to technology and art. It’s a unique site that deserves a little of your downtime, so stop by and roam around the different categories. And if you do, let me know what you think here in the comments or at the social media site where you found this blog link. As always, thanks for reading. ~ Chris K.
